Project “The wind of change” is a support for the Moldovan third sector in the field of developing NGOs that will involve and activate young people to undertake important social initiatives. In addition to providing participants with theoretical knowledge in the field of formal aspects (legal, financial), we also want to provide practical information on the functioning and development of such an organization, especially in the current pandemic situation, in which office work has been replaced by online work.
The project is dedicated to young and ambitious people who are active and eager to work, contributing to local development – primarily informal groups, students, and members of young NGOs.
As part of the project, there will be a one-week visit to Moldova, during which we will conduct the following workshop trainings:
Conducting social research: tools used for mapping social needs
Starting an NGO: legal and financial aspects
Remote organization management and learning Agile/ Scrum/ ROWE/ kanban methodology.
Workshops on building a voluntary network and social involvement of thematic groups
Training in e-volunteering, or how to get involved online
